Inclusive Education Examples From Around The World

The idea of inclusive education can be traced back to the 1970s, when it was first proposed as a way of educating children with special needs. Since then, countries around the world have adopted their own versions of this philosophy in order to help all students succeed. Inclusive education is not a new concept, but rather one that has been consistently improved upon over time based on feedback from teachers, parents and students. Here are some examples from four different countries:


The Indian government has made great strides in terms of inclusive education. According to the World Bank, India has a population of more than 1 billion people, including over 60 million people with disabilities. The government understands that it is important for these individuals to be included in society and the classroom if they are going to have any chance of living a fulfilling life.

The Indian Parliament passed the Rights of Persons with Disabilities Act (RPWD) in 2016 which required educational institutions around the country to implement policies aimed at ensuring equal access for students with disabilities. This legislation also established guidelines for teachers and administrators on how best to accommodate students with special needs within their classrooms and schools as well as other areas like dormitories or sports facilities if necessary.

Influencer marketing is a way for companies to reach new customers, build brand awareness and get their message out there.

Influencers are people who have a large following on social media platforms like Instagram or YouTube. They are often celebrities or bloggers with thousands of followers who will listen to what they say about your product or service.

Adapting Teaching Techniques To Support Stem

Adapting Teaching Techniques To Support Stem

STEM education is a growing field, and for good reason. STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and math, and it’s a broad subject that encompasses many different areas of study. It allows students to explore their interests in inventive ways, but it can also be difficult to teach effectively without boring the class. Here are some tips on how teachers can adapt their teaching techniques when teaching STEM subjects:

Introduce concepts in a way that is relevant for students.

  • Make sure the lesson is relevant to students.
  • Use examples that students can relate to.
  • Teach in a way that interests the students and their learning style, not yours!

Use hands-on activities to teach content.

Hands-on activities are engaging for students. Students learn better when they interact with the content, and hands-on activities provide an opportunity for students to do just that. Hands-on learning can be used to teach STEM concepts, as well as reinforce and demonstrate understanding of those concepts. Students can use a variety of tools including technology (like robotics kits), art supplies/materials (such as paintbrushes), or simple household items (such as measuring cups) in order to develop their understanding of STEM topics such as physics or biology through experimentation or observation.

Encourage students to be creative and solve problems on their own.

  • Encourage students to be creative and solve problems on their own.
  • Teach students how to think critically, problem solve, and be innovative.
  • Allow for group work in order to allow for collaboration and discussion among peers.
